Dear Primos, Friends, and Readers:

Recently, as I was finishing up the February article I got a telephone from Colorado artist, Eddie Martinez. His Cuauhtémoc,the Last Warrior King is on the front page of the February issue of Somos Primos. The link will take you to Part 2, "Walking the streets of Spain while sketching and listening for voices from the past."

Eddie shared his plans for him and his wife to travel to San Antonio, New Orleans, Pensacola, and St. Augustine to sketch, photograph, and record evidence of the earliest of Spanish presence in the United States in those locations.  The goal,walking the streets of the United States, seeking early historical evidence of the Spanish presence, listening for those voices.
After we got off the phone, I started thinking of Eddie's selfless dedication and the dedication of many Hispanics, who individually are making huge contribution in presenting the truth about our ancestors. All together our efforts are changing popular/preferred history with facts.  The changes are through sharing and honoring the histories of our ancestors and the many heroes who have fought for our right to be included in the history of the United States.  Our history is the history of the United States.
You will read in this issue many, many heritage project happening, projects headed by individuals and groups, with an endless expressions of sharing who we are . . . observing special historic dates with parades and community events, cemetery restorations, families and military statues, history and genealogy conferences, writing and oral history projects, restoration and site preservation,  cultural events, lectures, class room visits, reenactors, historical plaques, books, articles, exhibits, murals, presentations, newspaper columnists . .  most importantly, they are activities of our history . . . told by us.
I hope as you read these stories and articles, you will be inspired with a project that you can engage in . . . your family and your history matter.
God bless you and your family,  Mimi
